          Abstract

          Hypersensitivity to pressure and temperature is observed in the near-infrared emission lines of the Nd(3+) ion in a Cr(3+),Nd(3+):Gd(3)Sc(2)Ga(3)O(12) crystal, associated to the R(1,2)((4)F(3/2))→Z(5)((4)I(9/2)) and R(1,2)((4)F(3/2))→Z(1)((4)I(9/2)) transitions. The former emissions show large linear pressure coefficients of -11.3 cm(-1)/GPa and -8.8 cm(-1)/GPa, while the latter show high thermal sensitivity in the low temperature range. Thus this garnet crystal can be considered a potential optical pressure and/or temperature sensor in high pressure and temperature experiments up to 12 GPa and below room temperature, used in diamond anvil cells and excited with different UV and visible commercial laser due to the multiple Cr(3+) and Nd(3+) absorption bands. © 2012 Optical Society of America
